Ashbourne A Level Colleges in London

Founded in 1981, Ashbourne independent (private) sixth form college is situated in the very heart of Kensington, London. The college is fully co-educational and considers its primary strength to be its small size, coupled with its friendly and caring approach. No student is allowed to become lost in the crowd.

All courses, whether at A level or GCSE, are organised around a tutorial system in teaching groups of no more than 10 students. This enables tutors to engage directly with each individual.

No assumptions are made about a student's previous knowledge, and understanding is established in a step-by-step manner. The teaching style aims to be positive, encouraging and sympathetic to the challenges which students encounter.

Latest Article - A level College Students in London: Admissions tests for university

Applying for university can be a very daunting time for A level college students, in London and elsewhere. The combination of worrying about achieving the desired grades and making sure personal statements are ‘just right’ can be very stressful, and many utilize various support systems that are put in place in order to deal with the pressures of the application process.

Depending on what a student wishes to study after A levels, they may be subjected to even more testing. Aptitude tests also know as ‘admissions tests’ have been used for many years for subjects such as medicine and law, but new educational reforms could see them being more wide spread. The Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference, representative of 260 fee-paying schools, have expressed their concerns about whether a shake-up of A levels could result in universities having to use aptitude tests to select candidates accurately. Where no aptitude tests currently apply, universities use a combination of predicted A level grades and AS scores to make provisional offers, but we may see more institutions setting their own entrance exams as a way of dealing with the upheaval. For the time being, students and A level college tutors must work together to ensure that they are as prepared for any upcoming tests as they possibly can be.
